The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) has reinstated a standard 14-day quarantine for close contacts of COVID-19 cases effective April 5, 2021. This change was noted in a Frequently Asked Question document released by MDHHS and cited the increasing case rates and variant spread in Michigan as the reason for the change. This revised quarantine timeframe removes the option for a 10-day quarantine as mentioned on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) website. The CDC however does say “Your local public health authorities make the final decisions about how long quarantine should last, based on local conditions and needs. Follow the recommendations of your local public health department if you need to quarantine.”
The Michigan Oil and Gas Association will keep you informed as additional guidance on this matter is released.
